Operational finance takes business accounting to the next level: it answers the questions that accounting can’t. Questions like:
How can I spend less money on running my business?
Why am I making more sales but not making more profit?
How can I make more money without spending it all on advertising?
Why is so much money being tied up in my business’ operations?
Because Operational Finance exists to maximise a business’ profitability by changing how things are done and how decisions are made.
